My Jesus knows when I am Lonely
He knows each pain, He sees each care
He understands each lonely heartache
He understands because He cares

My Jesus knows just what I need
Oh yes! He knows just what I need
He satisfies and every need supplies
Yes, He knows just what I need

My Jesus knows just what I need
Oh yes! He knows just what I need
He satisfies and every need supplies
Yes, He knows just what I need

This is such a beautiful gospel song and Elvis' rendition of it was brilliant. The best gospel music will definitely always be Elvis' gospel music. Also, no one will ever be able to sing gospel songs as well as Elvis sang them.

A good song from an outstanding album. When Elvis sings a gospel song you know something really special is taking place.

A good song on a great album, His Hand In Mine. Truly indicative of the many musical sides of Elvis.

A great track from a great album. Elvis told Rca he wanted to record a gospel album and he picked the songs, all of which were great.

Southern Gospel song writer Mosie Lister has penned some classic songs in his long career. Among them, Where No One Stands Alone, His Hand In Mine and this simple but moving song. Elvis must have listened to many more of Lister's gospel songs throughout his career and perhaps one day he might have made an album dedicated to the writers work.

Beautifully performed sacred song from Elvis' first sacred LP "His Hand In Mine" (1960). This album is outstanding from beginning to end.

Elvis' voice is in superb control on this gentle gospel song.
